Justin Bieber’s first American Music Awards was perfection.

The 16-year-old teen heartthrob went four-for-four on Sunday night, capturing every award he was nominated for, including the top award of the night, favorite artist. He beat a list that featured veterans Eminem and Usher as well as Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.

Bieber became the youngest person to ever win the trophy. Bieber also won favorite pop/rock album, favorite pop/rock male, and the show’s breakthrough artist award.

“I can’t stop smiling; this is amazing,” Bieber said after he also beat Eminem and Usher for favorite pop/rock male. “Truly I don’t know how this is possible because I’ve been singing Eminem since I was three and Usher is my mentor. So this is big.”

Eminem, along with Lady Antebellum, had been the leading nominee with five awards. He didn’t come up empty handed though, winning two, along with Usher, who also nabbed a pair. Lady Antebellum took home one.

Other winners included Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift. Swift, last year’s artist of the year, took home favorite country female. Sporting sleek blonde hair instead of her usual cascading curls, Swift said simply: “I just want to thank the fans.”

‘Lincoln’ star sees where it all started

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Academy Award-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis is preparing for his role as Abraham Lincoln by visiting the state where the former president began his political career.

DreamsWorks Studios says Day-Lewis will star in the Steven Spielberg-directed film “Lincoln.”

The movie is based on the book “Team of Rivals” by Doris Kearns Goodwin, who joined Day-Lewis on his tour in Illinois.

The State Journal-Register reports the actor toured several historic sites Friday in Springfield including the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum. Filming is expected to begin next fall, and the movie is to be released in late 2012.

Lohan out of movie about late porn star

LOS ANGELES — Lindsay Lohan won’t be playing 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace in “Inferno.”

Writer-director Matthew Wilder says his production team is in negotiations with another actress and will make an announcement soon.

Some media reports say the 24-year-old starlet quit to focus on her court-ordered rehab for drug addiction; others say Wilder wanted her replaced.

The “Mean Girls” star is expected to be in rehab in southern California until at least Jan. 3.

The actress has become more of a tabloid mainstay than box office draw since a pair of high-profile arrests in 2007 led to a drug and drunken driving case.

‘Ace of Cakes’ canceled

BALTIMORE — Celebrity baker Duff Goldman hasn’t decorated his last elaborate cake, but he no longer has Food Network cameras following his every move.

Goldman confirmed in a statement on Charm City Cakes’ website that the show has been canceled and that production has already wrapped on the final season.

Food Network general manager and senior vice president Bob Tuschman says the network is developing new show concepts for Goldman.
